The next major thing for Android will be the release of Android 3.0 Honeycomb based android devices. Google has released a preview of the Android 3.0 SDK, with non-final APIs and system image to allow developers to start testing their applications on the new platform.


Android 3.0 Honeycomb will be a android platform designed for devices with larger screen-size like the tablets. So devices like Galaxy tab will benefit to a large extent. Honeycomb will have multitasking, push-notifications, widgets and many other new features.

The preview SDK release is available in the form of update to the current SDK package. You can download it from the SDK Manager.
